Since September 2012 OJSC "Krasnogorsk Plant. SA Zvereva " resumed production of the legendary USSR's lens Helios 40-2 1.5/85 mm, MC TeleZenitar-M 2.8/135 mm, MC APO TeleZenitar-M 4.5/300 mm, FishEye Zenitar 2.8/16 mm (M,K,C,H), MC Mir 20 M 3.5/20 mm, MC Zenitar 2/50 mm Plant again now produces not only military and space optics Laughing
Company store plant opened on 7 September 2012. Today I visited this shop. In honor of the opening of the store until October 8 20% discount. Smile
1. Shop

2. New Helios 40-2 on showcase. As you can see, the price (price for Russia is "Цена" ) is 8041.00 russian rubl ("Руб." on picture).

Lens in Russia is "Объектив", "Гелиос"=Helios
3. MC TeleZenitar 2.8/135 and TeleZenitar 4.5/300

4. Zenitar 2/50 and Mir 20 M 3.5/20

Right now, the plant produces Fisher Zenitar 2.8/16 mm for M42 (MC Zenitar-M 2,8 / 16) lens mount, Pentax K (MC Zenitar-K 2,8/16), Canon EF (MC Zenitar-C 2,8/16), Nikon F (MC Zenitar-H 2,8/16). But only MF Price: 5200-5500 Russian rubles
Since the new 2013 year is scheduled to start production under the Helios 40-2 bayonet mount Canon EF, Pentax K, Nikon F.

Today Russian Rubl rate: 1 $ = 31 rubl
1 € = 40 rubl


Unfortunately online store does not send abroad.

If you have any questions - ask me ) I will try to answer Smile

Very interesting and a hopeful sign for MF lenses in general.

Thats a very good price.
They should sell a lot of copies if they get international distributors.

That's a new Helios 40-2?

It is exactly the same? The serial number starts with 7?

I mean, even the coating looks the same. I would buy instantly if the new Helios had multi-coated optics.

I hope to hell it's decent optically, because I may well forgo my intended Samyang 14mm for that in M42. I need to find some example shots.

Metalluga, You seem to know a fair bit about these. Do You work for, or are associated with the company? How would I go about ordering this in the UK?

No, I am not affiliated with.
Just Russian photo-community, all buzzing about it. So decided to share the good news with foreign photographers
due to the sale, I finally decided to buy fisheye Zenitar and make sure the truth of rumors about Helios 40-2 Smile No wonder I spent 3 hours on the road Very Happy

While the online store sends the lens only to Russia

Shop consultant shared with me the plans of the plant, about that. that if sales go well, their marketing department is considering buying a license for autofocus.

I honestly never though I'd be looking for a Russian Proxy-buying service... Shocked

But I am now.
